Interviewer: Tell us about your relationship with Robert Downey Jr on set.
Jude Law: Oh, I love him. I love him.
Interviewer: Yeah? You had a bit of a bromance going on there.
Jude Law: What is this new term everyone is using?
Interviewer: Bromance?
Jude Law: Oh, it’s a horrible term. What about just a romance?
Interviewer: No, it’s not the same.
Jude Law: Why not? Why?
Interviewer: Cause then you’d have to star in a romantic comedy together or something.
Jude Law: We just have. Have you not seen it? [x]

October 14, 1066: The Battle of Hastings

thedeadkings:

Today is the 948th anniversary of the battle that changed the course of history. In an era when most battles took three hours at most, or better yet, were avoided altogether in favor of the traditional medieval chevauchée tactics of sackings, skirmishes, burning and pillaging, Hastings was fought over nine hours — from dawn to dusk on what is now known as Senlac Hill in Battle, East Sussex. And while military historians, recreationists, and geologists, among other people, have simulated the terrain, the soldiers, the tactical advantages, and the progress of the battle many times, nobody can figure out how on earth William, Duke of Normandy, won the battle and the crown of England from Harold Godwinson. But in entangling the destinies of England and France for the next millennium, permanently altering the shape of the English language, and the power politics of all of Europe, the real fight was just beginning.

HELL YEAH I AM READING THAT. For the aforementioned reasons obviously.

Ahem.

WAIT WHAT. Martin Freeman in Lithuania, in a pub I used to frequent???? 

But… nobody goes to Lithuania. 

Mind - blown.

Yet here he is with Paulius at the entrance of Piano Man bar in Vilnius.

I wish that therapy didn’t have such a stigma. I’ve gone to therapy. It helps to talk.

[LISTEN] | [DOWNLOAD] (Save Link As) | [iTUNES] | ——————————————

This is a recording of the From House to Psych panel at 221BCon 2014. Panelists Lindsay D. Colwell (@overeducatedgrl), Deirdre (patrick-jane.tumblr.com@pensive1), Mixie (m6i.tumblr.com) and our very own Amy Thomas discuss TV shows that use characters who are (more or less) based on Sherlock Holmes.

They cover such diverse shows as House MD, The Mentalist, Lie to Me, and Psych.All these shows feature main characters who share traits with the Great Detective. Whether you’ve an avid fan of any of the shows discussed, or whether you’re just intrigued to look at Holmes through a different lens, this panel will be interesting and fun to listen to.

The panellists talk about the shows as adaptations vs. derivations, their storytelling techniques, and ways in which characters such as Patrick Jane of The Mentalist or Greg House differ from Sherlock Holmes (and each other), and ways in which they are similar. And, of course, they touch on possible reasons why characters like these are so enduringly popular with audiences around the globe.

Because I saw a post explaining England vs Great Britain vs United Kingdom.
And I felt like people needed the same about Holland and The Netherlands. Because Holland is NOT a country.

I ALWAYS WONDERED

SAME HERE
but also what about the ‘Dutch/Hollander’ thing because that confuses me about as much as the ‘British/Welsh/Scottish/Irish/English’ thing used to.

Dutch would apply to everyone from the Netherlands. Hollander would only apply to those from those two provinces. Since I am from South Holland, I can say I am both.

I must also add that Dutchland is a perfectly acceptable if Netherlands is too much of a mouthful - Janine endorses it herself. :)

So, I’ve been debating on if it’s ok or selfish or not to ask… but I decided just to go for it. On Monday (10/06) I’m turning 30! And it’ll also be a little over the 120 day mark of me being in treatment and sober from a ton of bad habits. I’ve also been in NYC for a little bit over a year, so I’m excited about that too!

In any case, it’s been a tough, but very productive few months. I’m starting up on medication, and treatment is going well. I’m still learning to manage my illnesses, but I’m making big strides! I’m job hunting, and working with my school to hopefully enroll for the Spring 2015 semester! I’ve also contacted a personal trainer, and I’m researching finding a new GP doctor, and looking to have some tests done so I can better manage my physical health. I’m also looking into yoga and dance classes again. I’m really committed to getting healthier and learning to love myself, so that I can love others in a healthier way. 

I don’t normally like asking for things. It makes me very uncomfortable.

However, I decided it’s ok….

So, if any of my followers would be interested, I would love it if you could send me birthday cards. Please don’t include gifts, I would just really appreciate and like it if you would like…. a nice card with an introduction of who you are if we don’t currently speak or know each other…. or just a hello and something about yourself… and if we do know one another, just a hi and whatever you’d like to put in your card would be great!

I love cards and notes, and it would be super appreciated if anyone would like to send any! Again, please don’t feel pressured to, and don’t send any gifts, that’s so not what this is about. I just really love stationary and cards and notes, they always cheer me up.

IF YOU’D LIKE TO SEND A CARD OR NOTE, HERE IS MY PO BOX:

YOU REALLY ACTUALLY MEAN I GET TO SEE THE LOST 1916 SHERLOCK HOLMES FILM??????
"The film will be restored for viewing by European and American audiences, under the supervision of film restorer and SFSFF Board President Robert Byrne, who said, “‘It’s an amazing privilege to work with these reels that have been lost for generations. William Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes has ranked among the holy grails of lost film and my first glimpse of the footage confirms Gillette’s magnetism. Audiences are going to be blown away when they see the real Sherlock Holmes on screen for the first time.’"
According to the Cinematheque, “[This] is a complete nitrate duplicate that, to date, appears to be unique. Originally intended for the French operations, it contains duplicate French intertitles, and annotations of hues. The latter feature is still surprising because Essanay films have rarely been exploited in color in the United States. It seems therefore plausible that color version was created specifically for France. [The duplicate]  is currently being restored by the French Cinematheque digital and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, an organization with which we have restored American films of our collections for 2 years now. This restoration is made ​​possible through the generous support of individuals who are passionate about Sherlock Holmes.”
